    List your favorite stores/sources for primal foods?

    Primal Fuel
    My top ones at present:
    Local Trader Joe's/Health food stores/farmers markets
    USWellness Meats
    Amazon (carrying more every day!)
    Swansons Vitamins (they have other items too)

    I don't have much new to add:

    Local farm market
    Trader Joe's
    Amazon.com (I buy coconut milk by the case, haha)
    Vital Choice Wild Seafood & Organics
    Ethnic markets/grocery stores

    BTW...I'm thinking of putting together a Philadelphia Primal/Paleo meet up for the summer. Are you nearby? Would you be interested?

    Local butcher (very cool wine finished beef, also grass fed) also have awesome hookup with local sheep farm...mmm lamb....
    Farmers market in the summer, grocery in winter
    Natures Fare Market for coconut milk
    And I just placed my first order at iherb for more obscure stuff: coconut flakes, quality coconut oil, coconut aminos and raw cocoa powder : )
    Having a hard think about the garden this year as food prices in Canada are going up up up. Must make the most of it!

    Whole Foods for most fruit and veggies (organic), non-homogenized but pasteurized whole milk, fish, coconut products, weird meat like liver, heart, duck, heritage turkey
    Natural Grocers (yep, that's their name) for vitamins, supplements, some veggies/meat
    Local bison ranchers (Colorado, we have lots) for bison and lamb and sometimes they have beef
    Local fancy small grocer for rendered duck fat
    Savory Spice shop or Penzey's for spices

    Trader Joe's is my #1 go-to place, and I'm looking at moving to a state that doesn't have one and sorta freaking out about having to learn to live without their products.

    Kitana: that happened to my daughter when they moved to Syracuse, NY. When she visits me or I'm going there, she stocks up. I wish TJ's would get an online store.

    - Cow-pooled for beef (1/16 disappears fast, though)
    - local farm delivery for organic heirloom veggies (splitting orders with a friend)
    - Butcher shop for pork/chicken/etc (Aubrey's Meats... I loves you!)

    Only store I visit infrequently is Nature's Food Pantry, and it's mostly for spices, 35% cream, eggs and the occasional particular veggie I want. Oh, I sometimes hit Loblaws for bags of frozen blueberries and strawberries (and coffee), but that's it.

    I have a new site up and will soon be blogging at The Wayward Mind. (My journal is semi-retired at this point)
